I have purchased my share of music software over the years. I've downloaded freeware, some with bloatwear, and even some that works. Magix Music Maker 2014 is the first program that worked immediately upon installation.
Want to set up a midi keyboard and immediately plug-n-play?
Want to set up a microphone and have it work immediately with low latency?
Want to have access to hip hop, dubstep, metal, electro, techno, and rock all in the same program?
This program is a dream come true for n00bs and people that understand VST's, DAW, and other recording industry terms.
I wish there were more "dlc" packs available on steam. The loops are semi-limited compared to FruityLoops or similar software. However, this is easily fixed by importing your favorite VST like Drumkit From Hell or whatever else you fancy.
The program crashed once on my 16gb RAm I-7 Ati duel 6900 Crossfire Rig due to memory failure. It does require pretty intense specs. Might have been a fluke because I loaded seven tracks and was using 10 USB inputs though =P
I recommend the hell out of this product. Whether you want to rap, program music to dance to, make home videos, or create a soundtrack for your own wedding...the whole package is here.
Would give it 10 stars, but settling for 9 due to an overcharge for samples in the Premium version. An extra $50.00 is hefty for more samples.
Download the Fruity Loops 11 Demo before installing this program. It will come with an AISO latency modulator that makes recording latency nearly flawless. Magix Maker makes perfect use of this in the settings section.
Buy this now! Especially while it's $29.99. First time I've never had buyer's remorse on Steam in a long time!
